    Freezing cooked veggies and beans for example.  Blanched and frozen veggies yes, canned cooked beans yes.  There's a best method for each type of food.  Sometimes blogs like these forgo the best methods for their own convenient methods.

    So while we're on the subject, you don't see anything wrong with freezing cooked black beans in a jar? Because I just made a huge batch and will most likely need to freeze some of it.... and if I can avoid plastic I'd rather avoid it.

    Why didn't you just can the beans?  I suppose if you've already cooked them and need them preserved a long time then you really have no choice.

    I have zero experience at canning... that'll be a new horizon to explore, one of those days. I cooked them 2 days ago and they are sitting in the fridge, I'm concerned that they are not being used up fast enough...
